Kimberly Silpath's Four Hour Nap ($7.20) used a :57.2 middle half to her advantage in Friday (June 17) evening's $9,000 Mares Open 2 Pace at Tioga Downs, edging clear of her five rivals for a 1:52.4 triumph after controlling the terms throughout.

Mike Merton made all the pace with the six-year-old Four Starzzz Shark mare, duelling with Asset Management (Fern Paquet Jr.) on approach to the first turn and clearing through a :26.4 first quarter before backing the pace down. Four Hour Nap faced no real challenges en route to her 17th career win, sprinting clear at head-stretch and posting a two and three-quarter length victory over pocket rival Asset Management. Pompano invader Goldstar Rockette (Corey Braden) circled four-wide in the stretch, rallying from last to take third in her local debut.

Rick Dane Jr. trains Four Hour Nap, who scored her second win of the meet.

Scott Coulter and Dan Clements led all drivers with two wins each on the nine-race card.

Ostriches and camels returned to Tioga Downs after a three-year hiatus, taking part in two non-wagering, 100-yard sprints before a sizable on-track crowd.
